In a previous B90X video, specifically B90X Day 54 around good product design being honest. If you remember, we spent some time talking about resentment being a powerful emotion that helps us know whether we’re being true to ourselves. I highly recommend that you go back to that B90X episode. It’ll be worth your time.
However, today I want to tell you another very powerful emotion. It’s called shame.
Have you ever felt shame? Man, it can be a dehabilitating emotion.
But let’s talk about why shame is a wonderful emotion. Because shame can produce the final element we need to change our lives: WILL.
Inspiration and epiphanies can hurt. They can unmask us. Reveal to us who we truly are. There’s no glory in personal epiphanies. They only make for good stories at the AA meetings or late at night among other people struggling in the same trenches you’re in.
I couldn’t tell you how many stories I’ve heard of people who have lost weight. Found the person inside of them, and create a whole new lifestyle that is healthy, wealthy, and purpose driven. It was often their SHAME, of looking in the mirror and having the truth stare back at them.
Here’s my point. If you ever feel shamed. If you ever feel shame about your life. Embrace it. Sit on it. Let it percilate in your mind. Meditate on it. Let it sink in. Deep. Let it hurt. Let it get you angry. Good good. Enjoy it.
Now fucking do something about it.
In today’s B90X let’s get serious, if you’re willing to share. Where have you felt shame? How has that shame led you to a better life? Encourage us. Inspire us with your story.
Why? Because we’re all in it together. We’re all on the same exact Bitcoin spaceship, headed to the moon. My brothers, my sisters. We’re all in it together.
